    How can I get video clips to play in a browser?

    MECS Level 1

      Scenario:  A client visits my Web site.  A shockwave movie plays automatically.  It contains a video clip.  When the SW movie encounters the frame containing the movie clip, it simply skips over it and continues.  The video never plays.  I have tried avi, windows media, mpeg and quicktime with the same results.

       

      I have found that the video plays fine as long as I open the director movie with Director.  But when I open it with a browser, the video clip does not play.  I have tried Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers.

       

      Does someone know what I am missing to make the video play in a browswer?

       

      Thanks.

          Presumably you have code to stop the playhead from moving while the video plays? You might want to post it.

           

          If you are testing this locally, you need a folder named "dswmedia" somewhere in the path or linked content, like your video file, won't be found. Check the docs for more details.
